I am working on a participatory art-based research project on the relationship between aesthetic experiences and the process of (re)humanisation during intractable conflicts. More specifically, my doctoral research is focusing on the ways in which conflicting parties engage with each other through theatre and on how theatrical performances may disrupt potential dehumanising narratives.
